US v. Cazares-Olivas, 07-2080

Denial of a motion to suppress evidence seized from a house in a drug prosecution is affirmed where, despite officers' violation of federal rules in obtaining a search warrant over the phone that rendered the warrant invalid and the search unreasonable, the evidence was admissible since: 1) defendants received the benefit of a magistrate judge's impartial evaluation before the search occurred; 2) the search was supported by probable cause; and 3) an agent particularly described the place to be searched and the things to be seized.
